North Yorkshire-based property developer Newby is celebrating its most successful quarter of 2020, following the reopening of the property market in May.
The period has seen unprecedented interest in Newby’s Glasshouses Mill and West House Gardens developments in particular, which both offer countryside living and outdoor space – factors which have been highly valued by homeowners during lockdown.
Eight properties have sold in recent weeks at Glasshouses Mill, the redevelopment of the historic Nidderdale mill set alongside the River Nidd, some using the Help to Buy scheme that is available across the development. A further six properties have sold at West House Gardens in the pretty village of Birstwith near Harrogate. Over the next five weeks many of the completions held up by Covid restrictions will take place and many more residents will be able to move into their new homes.
At Glasshouses Mill, just 14 properties remain across the property types, to include houses, cottages and apartments, not forgetting the historic Clock Tower which houses the fully restored working mill clock, an original red brick barrel vaulted ceiling and the tower’s original stone steps. Only five luxury family homes, which will soon be ready to move into, are also still available at West House Gardens.
Francesca Kaye at Newby, said: “We’ve been delighted with how busy Newby has been over the last three to four months. The demand built up during lockdown, combined with the stamp duty holiday, has obviously given people a real incentive to think seriously about their next move. Apartments are also of interest still , with the likes of Ryedale House and Springfield Court including outside space either in the form of a balcony or garden terrace. The Help to Buy scheme which is available across the majority of our developments has also proven to be extremely popular and is a great way to enable first time buyers to get a step onto the property ladder.
“All of our current developments have seen a surge in interest but it’s been particularly noticeable at Glasshouses and West House Gardens. Lockdown gave many people the opportunity to really consider what they want from their home, with a rural location and outdoor space clearly ranked high on the agenda with our buyers – both of which those developments offer in plenty. We look forward to welcoming many residents into their finished new homes over the coming months as well as speaking with many more potential homebuyers looking to make the most of the Chancellor’s stamp duty savings.”
Show homes are open to view by appointment only and virtual viewings are also available. To book a viewing please visit the relevant development on this website for the contact details for each development.
